Handel: Saul / Rilling, Taylor, Lutze, Eiche, et al

Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Saul
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Handel’s Saul is an operatic oratorio with ever-intensifying action and increasingly drastic scenes. Handel seems to have been especially moved by this particular text. Helmuth Rilling has taught generations of choral directors, discovered many of today’s most gifted singers, commissioned numerous masterworks from the great composers of our time, and been a tireless musical scholar, rescuing many glorious works from obscurity. He is a giant among musicians.

BBC Music Magazine
Notwithstanding a few weaknesses, Rilling convincingly sustains the drama with mainly well-judged tempos, an appropriate sense of pacing, and strong support from chorus and instrumentalists.
